D.R. Domenichini Construction Newsletter



We hope this newsletter finds you and your families safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. While everyone is trying to figure out how to navigate the current situation, we wanted to let you know that we are here if you need us.  Due to the shelter in place order, DRD cannot perform any on-site bid meetings or any actually remodeling projects; therefore all of our current jobs are on hold.  With that being said, we wanted to let you know that we are here as a resource if you want to connect via phone, Zoom, or FaceTime to talk about DIY projects,future projects, design ideas, etc.  
Please don't hesitate to reach out by contacting Dave at dave@drdcon.com or 408.691.3283. We look forward to serving you in the near future and send you our very best wishes.
We might as well be productive, right? Just because we are instructed to shelter in place, doesn't mean we can't get a few things accomplished. Here are a few simple projects to get you moving around and feeling like you're getting stuff done around the house. 

Prevent mosquitoes
In recent years, we've become more aware of the potential danger mosquitos can pose to our health. "West Nile virus and Zika virus are just the latest diseases caused by these winged pests," Sedinger says.
The best way to prevent mosquitos around your home is simply to get rid of any standing water. "Walk around your property [and peek at your neighbors']. If you see anything or any area where water stands, fix it, tip it, get rid of it or maintain it regularly," Sedinger says.

Wash windows
Clean the grime off glass inside and out for a lighter, brighter home indoors and increased curb appeal outdoors. Wash the exterior windows yourself by using a hose attachment.

Clean gutters and downspouts
After the last frost has passed, it's important to have your gutters and downspouts cleaned and repaired. "Clogged gutters and downspouts can cause the wood trim at the eaves to rot, and that can invite all kinds of critters into your attic space," Sedinger says.
Having your gutters and downspouts cleaned early in the season can also help prevent damage from spring rains. "Gutters and downspouts should be clean and running free," Sedinger says. "If your downspouts are installed properly, water is diverted away from the house so that no water collects around your foundation."

Clean your fireplace
If your home has a working wood-burning fireplace, the end of winter is a good time to give it a fresh start. Protect your hands with gloves and cover the area around the fireplace with a tarp. Carefully remove the (completely cool) remains of any charred logs and ash using fireplace tools. Then gently clean the fireplace surround. Do not attempt to clean inside the chimney - that job should be left to a professional chimney sweep.

Check sprinkler and irrigation systems
Checking your sprinklers or irrigation systems in the spring can save water - and your plants. Sedinger shares these tips for checking your watering system:

 - Run the system through all the zones manually and walk the property.
 - Make sure none of the sprinkler heads are broken or damaged.
 - Adjust any heads that are spraying the house, especially windows, as this can cause moisture problems. 
 - Adjust heads that are spraying the street, sidewalk or porches to avoid wasting water.

Check screen doors and windows
Screens are designed to let the breeze flow in and keep the bugs out, but they can only do their job if they're free from holes and tears.
Before setting up your screens for the warm months ahead, be sure to carefully check each one and repair any holes or tears, no matter how small. You can find repair kits at most hardware and home-improvement stores.
